“I’ll Be a Mummy’s Uncle”
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Rahway Rec Center (Rahway, NJ)
Ophidian defeated UltraMantis Black with a small package. Ophidian went under
the ring and brought UltraMantis’ staff out with him. As Mantis and Ophidian
fought over the staff, Ophidain sprayed black mist in Mantis’ face to allow him
to cradle Mantis.
Kobald defeated Saturyne with the Demon's Toilet.
Chuck Taylor and Johnny Gargano got the three points in the four corner
elimination tag. Chuck Taylor school boyed a Maximo (couldn’t see which one).
They both pinned Jack Bonza after the Bravados hit a double-team elevated
overdrive, and then Gargano pinned Lancelot Bravado after the elevated DDT/Hurts
Donut combination. This result should make the previously announced match
between 3.0 and FIST in Lafayette, IN, for the Campeonatos de Parejas.
Mr. Touchdown defeated Archibald Peck when Peck was disqualified for excesivo de
castigo. This was the debut of the Mixed Martial Archie persona. Archie came out
wearing his normal tights and cape, but with MMA shorts and a shirt, both
advertising Venum. He had a towel over his head and a mouthguard in. A super fun
match, which included Peck declaring the end of a round just as Mr. Touchdown
mounted some offense, Dasher Hatfield getting ejected from ringside, and senior
official Bryce Remsburg falling asleep while Peck locked in a guillotine choke.
Veronica came out midmatch and began flirting with Mr. Touchdown, which caused
the enraged Peck to begin a ground and pound. When he wouldn’t let up, Remsburg
called for the bell. It has been two years since the last time a match has been
stopped for excesivo de castigo.
Jigsaw defeated Tim Donst after a superplex. Jig kicked out of 2 From Dusk to
Donsts and was able to avoid the shoelace-assisted rear naked choke. Donst was
constantly talking to the cameras to Director of Fun Wink Vavasseur and
Hallowicked about the Hallowicked and using his finger to simulate a stem on the
top of Jigsaw’s mask.
Intermission. Ultramantis Black was the in-ring photo opportunity for the fans.
Jakob Hammermeier defeated Dragonfly with la magistral with his feet up on the
ropes. A really short match.
In the Trial of Akuma, Gran Akuma defeated Gregory Iron with a Liger bomb.
Referee Jon Barber was knocked out halfway through the match, which prompted
Icarus, who was acting as guest timekeeper, to come to the ring and punch Akuma
with a chain wrapped around his fist. When Iron wouldn’t capitalize on the
interference, Icarus knocked him out too. Iron had his nose busted open after a
Tenchi Crash from Akuma near the end of the match.
Sara Del Rey defeated Kodama with a small package. Both Obariyon and Kobald
remained at ringside and attempted distractions and interferences liberally.
GEKIDO (17, The Shard, assailANT, and combatANT) defeated The Colony and Eddie
Kingston when combatANT pinned Soldier Ant after a TKO. Soldier Ant was going
after assailANT's mask when he got caught with the TKO. 17 and the Shard made
multiple attempts at Fire Ant and Green Ant’s masks. Very much a brawl, just
like the matches GEKIDO was involved in on the events in Canada. GEKIDO entered
and exited through the front door. No appearance from deviANT, the third member
of the Swarm.
Notes: Bryce Remsburg, Gavin Loudspeaker, Leonard F. Chikarason, and Mike
Quackenbush rotated commentary duties while Remsburg and Jon Barber shared
referee duties. Larry Dallas, Scott Reed, Mia Yim, and other wrestlers booked
for the JAPW show watched from the crowd. Larry Dallas was even approached to
participate in Billy Kumohara’s Quiz Present Crisis Battle. Dallas did not know
the answer to the question “What does Gekido translate to in English?” Gavin
Loudspeaker was doing the hard sell for the events in Easton (May 19), New York
City (May 20), and Philadelphia (June 2). But before those events, Chikara
returns to action in Chicago Ridge on April 28 and Layafette, IN, on April 29.
